Hello, Friend!

(I hope we’re going to become friends!)

I’m Stephanie.

I am a mom  of 3 rambunctious littles (2 girls and a boy), professional juggler of chaos, lover of sour candies and unapologetic Buddy the Elf enthusiast (Smiling really is my favorite!). I’m a glass-half-full kind of gal, with a sunshiny disposition and a knack for making lifelong friends.

Beyond my fierce love of family and friends, it’s photography that has my heart. Formerly a teacher with a Master’s Degree in Education from VCU, I began my photography career as owner of Hoot Media in 2011, mostly working with children and families. But it wasn’t until I started photographing weddings that I really found my purpose. Having the opportunity to witness and capture the spark between two people in love is, simply put, magical.

As wonderful as my experience as a wedding photographer has been, Curvy White Dress was born out of my realization that too many women are terrified of the photographer on their wedding day. Too many women believe that if their arms aren’t perfectly toned, or their tummies aren’t flat, or if they don’t have a gap between their inner thighs that they aren’t the right kind of beautiful for their wedding day. Did you know what matters most is how you two look at each other? THAT’S what I see when I photograph you.

Curvy White Dress is about celebrating every woman’s unique beauty. It’s about making sure that, on your wedding day, you are surrounded by people – family, friends and wedding professionals alike – who GET you, who care about you and who are thrilled to celebrate the magic of your love story.

I strive to do just that as a wedding photographer. Because it’s not about “my art.” YOU are the art, my lovely bride-to-be, and my job is to help you see that.

What our clients are saying

We LOVE Stephanie! You know how some people just love their job and you can tell? She is one of them. We had her do our engagement session, a boudoir session (gift for my husband), and our wedding. When she says that she can get your family photos quick she can! She also has a way of just making you feel comfortable as your getting your photos taking which is sometimes difficult for me. We love the photos! She also has a way of catching who you are and not looking posed. When we were choosing a photographer this was one of the first things we noticed in her albums and what we have in all our photos! She also went above and beyond on our wedding day and helped keep us on track when the person we thought was going to act as our day of was not to be seen. Definitely check her out you won’t regret it and she will make your day a joy!

Stephanie is not only an amazing photographer but she is an amazing person. I feel so blessed to have her be a part of my wedding. My wedding was suppose to be on 1/7/17 but the snow moved it to Friday. She assured me several times that no matter what she will be at my wedding. She also offered to help run errands in order to get my wedding moved to a different day. She is awesome and you will have the best experience!!
